My name is Killary (www.killaryperu.com) and I will be your host for this class. I am a Peruvian singer and music teacher. This class will be held in my home, where I myself give singing lessons.
The Charango class will be taught by Camilo Calderon, in my opinion he is one of the best Charango players around. He is also one of my best friends and he plays with me, in my band. He also loves to teach; I can pledge to that, he's my Charango coach. He also teaches and plays at other very important institutions and universities in Peru.
We make Peruvian music and we teach Peruvian music, that's what we love to do. So come over and we'll have some fun
